    Horsethief shock

    I've just got a Horsethief frame, but without a shock.
    Can anyone tell me what tune the shock has, ie the little bar charts on the bottom of the air sleeve that shows the rebound and compression tune so that I can get a suitable shock.

    How did you get the frame without the shock?
    Narrow and rugged is the path that leads to life and few find it.

    He does still need the info I'm sure, he bought the one in the classifieds with a Cane Creek piggy back shock $$$$ that I guess the seller removed to sell the HT frame cheaper to the dude above. *CSI Horatio mode, takes glasses off, cue the music* Yeeeeaaaaaah!

    Thanks but I've now got a rp3 on it.
    It came from a German shop, I thought the price was a bit too cheap!
    Even with having to get a shock, it turned out way cheaper than anywhere else.
    Unfortunately a couple of spacers for the shock were missing, I'm still waiting for replies from the shop, the distributors and from salsa!
    Good good I sourced some myself or I'll still be waiting, not good customer service!

    Generally, mounting spacers for shocks are sold separately as they differ from frame to frame.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Yes I know that, the Horsethief needs a spacer between the swing link and the shock eye bushes.
    I managed to get a pivot service kit that had the spacers in
